Rats barely look like a threat until you discover the carnage left behind by a family of the destructive rodents.

Problems Caused by Rats

Soon after a family of rats enters a home, the clan begins to search for materials to build a spacious nest. Soft materials such as newspapers, magazines, and clothing are the first to go. Then, rats turn to tough objects like wall insulation and wooden panels. The hard objects are no match for the razor like incisors rats have developed through years of constant chewing and gnawing.

After taking care of shelter, rats start the search for food. The rodents move down stairs and crawl through small holes in the wall to head into the kitchen. Any dry food left open in the kitchen is fair game for a pack of rats and it takes the group a short time to fill their stomachs. What is left behind is not food, but instead, the rodents leave behind urine and fecal matter. Any food tainted by rat urine and fecal matter is susceptible to growing foodborne microorganisms that cause serious health problems, from a high fever to intense stomach cramps.

Critter Control Starts with Prevention

The experienced rat removal specialists at Brinker Animal Removal know how to remove rats from a wall or trap a family of the rodents in an attic. However, we prefer to discuss ways to prevent rats from gaining access to your Prosper, Texas home through the roof or the basement. We seal every hole we find, regardless of the size of the hole. Rats are the wild animal version of contortionists, as the rodents can squeeze through holes and cracks much smaller than their body frames. We also recommend you replace damaged mortar and weather stripping, as well as install exterior door sweeps.

The best strategy for discouraging rats involves properly storing food. You should not leave any perishable food out, such as fruits and vegetable. Pour all the dry food into airtight plastic containers that you place inside tightly shut cabinets and pantries. Ventilate the basement to eliminate water sources and repair leaky pipes that produce puddles of water for nourishment. We also suggest removing and cleaning every drain grate to prevent clogging.
